Kudos showcase at MediaCityUK with Gok Wan pre-filming event

Kudos, part of the Crown Group, hosted over 70 agents, venue finders, event managers and production companies from Manchester and the North West at the MediaCityUK Open Centre.

On arrival, guests were greeted with canapés and a drinks reception on the Mezzanine in the Open Centre.

The event space overlooks the Piazza and the Blue Peter Gardens, forming part of the BBC film studios at MediaCityUK in Manchester. This was followed by a welcome speech from Paul Newman, Director of Communication for MediaCityUK.

Paul Newman was encouraged to see so many event professionals at the venue and went on to say: “MediaCityUK is a destination with an onsite hotel, tram links, car parking and the Mezzanine has a great view over the Piazza. We look forward to seeing a wide range of events taking place here”.

As the evening developed guests were given the opportunity to explore the venue before heading outside to the space we had specially reserved for the highlight of the evening; to watch the final episode of Gok Wan’s Stripping for Summer show, which was filmed live on the Piazza.
